Emerald Challenges Officially Gone
« on: June 16, 2008, 11:00:11 PM »
Simply put, the computer that I had Macromedia Fireworks on had to be restored to factory settings yesterday, and I no longer have a license to reinstall it. RPG lost his copy long ago, and SDM has kind of stopped caring. So you can do any challenge you like at this point, but don't expect a reward, because we have no way of giving one.

[insert epitaph here]

rolkupdate: SDM has taken the Emerald Challenges back to SCD again.

I may be able to grade the challenges once I have my files recovered from my virused pc(DOS Based D: ) and I retrieve my serial for fireworks(I'm sure Zizou or CGS has it still) and if we can contact someone to get the original templates from (unfortunately to our knowledge, only SDM could possibly have them now). Once I've restored my copy of fireworks I'll settle RPG's and Thorn's fireworks troubles. As for the mural images, The only way to get a template is to rip the text from one of the already posted images(which with any luck, might not be too hard for me....depending on the ammount of frames.

Once this has been taken care of, I highly suggest RPG and/or Thorn post the templates somewhere secure in the staff forums.

I hope I can help restore activity to the forums and the sonic community in general this way.

Good luck and godspeed to us all.

^You really don't have to do anything, becuase SDM already sent me Fireworks. I PM'd him back saying, "That's nice, but can you send the source images as well?" They're a ridiculous amount of frames long apiece, so erasing the text isn't really an option. I very much want to get back into this, especially with carretero having beaten the only remaining challenge without an award given yet.

When he responds to my PM with the images I'll be grading again, and I'll be sending RPG copies so that he can get started again.

Why so? I'm the helpful type that likes to get things moving. And I have ripped text out of emeralds and badnik images before. The only actually challenging aspect I see are the Master Emeralds and The Rainbow Emerald Because of Excessive framecount.
Yes I know It's not my authority to be telling you or RPG "How to do your jobs."
That's just my will to help out.
I'll leave you to do your business, your way.

Good luck and Godspeed to you

My PC should be restored and fully operational along with Windows live In 2 weeks Maximum

I'm not saying it's bad that you want to help; rather, I appreciate that. Saying that grading the Emerald Challenges will "restore activity" to the "Sonic community" at large is what seems a bit over the top. :P

Yeah. I suppose I should let SEGA and Sonicteam take care of that. After all, That's their Jobs right? Heh heh.
Now I'll stop posting before this gets out of hand.

Also good to see you active again Thorn. Although the same could be said about me >_>

Peace!

Well, it's SEGA and Sonic Team's job to produce good Sonic games (they've been failing at their job a lot recently). Of course, the quality of their games probably has a direct effect on the activeness of the Sonic communities. At least I hope so, as Sonic Unleashed looks good! Could bring the community back to life!

Omega Knuckles says:
YO SDM
Omega Knuckles says:
How've ya been!
Omega Knuckles says:
You remember me don't ya?
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
oh hey!
Omega Knuckles says:
Thorn's been trying to reach you
Omega Knuckles says:
He needs the templates for the Emerald Challenges
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
I've spoken with thorn already
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
all that's been settled
Omega Knuckles says:
ok then
Omega Knuckles says:
Then perhaps he's too lazy to announce that then
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
he said he's "not about to write 300 emeralds"
Omega Knuckles says:
lol
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
I was like I don't give a crap, they're yours now.
Omega Knuckles says:
lol
Omega Knuckles says:
He needs to give them to RPG then
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
it begs me to wonder though, what are you doing with TSC?
Omega Knuckles says:
Trying to finish the challenges I have yet to beat
Omega Knuckles says:
Only set left is the Master Emeralds
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
leave them alone, they're two years old.
Omega Knuckles says:
And I need to re-do the Super Emeralds
Omega Knuckles says:
But that's all I have left
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
in less than a week they'll be completely worthless
Omega Knuckles says:
What makes you say that? It's a symbol of accomplishment.
Omega Knuckles says:
Other people don't need to respect it
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
a symbol that many people have had many months to attempt
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
it wouldn't be such a high stature of achievement if everyone had one
Omega Knuckles says:
But does everyone have one?
Omega Knuckles says:
Other than the Chaos Emeralds, Doubtfully
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
if you allow that much time on a single challenge, yes, many do have them
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
it's time to let them go, let them rest, you've had your chance to do them. A new series will dawn next week.
Omega Knuckles says:
Sorry
Omega Knuckles says:
My pride won't quell until I do them
Omega Knuckles says:
But nice to hear a new set of challenges
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
Emerald challenges: Series 2008
Omega Knuckles says:
So Emblems again or what?
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
a freash new rack of chaos and super emerals
Omega Knuckles says:
Cool
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
with sleeker designs to outpace the old ones
Omega Knuckles says:
Sweet
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
and tougher challenges to boot
Omega Knuckles says:
Sounds good
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
every year they'll be locked away
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
and a new series will begin
Omega Knuckles says:
Wow
Omega Knuckles says:
Then I need to do it fast
Omega Knuckles says:
It's like Anchor TH's old challenges on TSS
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
it's already too late for my fiest series
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
*first
Omega Knuckles says:
Why?
Omega Knuckles says:
SCD HASN'T EVEN COME OUT
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
those on TSC, no one's giving them out anymore
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
those are long gone my friend
Omega Knuckles says:
Tch
Omega Knuckles says:
You've changed quite a bit
Omega Knuckles says:
You're still the Spin dash master though

THE NEXT BIT OF INFO MAY BE CONFIDENTIAL, I HAVE NO CLUE. SCD COMES OUT IN 5 DAYS ANYWAYS, WHO CARES.

I guess you've got a lot of pressure from SCD and College
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:

Omega Knuckles says:
Indeed
Omega Knuckles says:
I'll enjoy the lulz while I have it
ImtheJunior (SpinDashMaster) says:
with great gifts comes great responsibility
Omega Knuckles says:
lol, true

Sounds like SDM has a lot of pressure on his hands. He seems to be done with those challenges himself but does this declare them closed? I mean nobody has ever cleared every emerald in all of his sets.


Also I believe he's giving up too easy on the old Emerald Challenges. I do my challenges for my own pride, Not to show off to other people. This meeting made me feel pretty grim and queasy(I don't get nauseous easy(at least not from motion)). I was expecting our reunion to be a lot more brighter but I guess all the pressure from SCD, College, And work can really get to ya. I guess that's why I relieved myself of duty in the SCD G-Staff. The burden must be unfathomable. But anyways I am not one who "dwells" in my past but I do get good nostalgia once in a while. My entire past wasn't haunted. Mostly just last year between August and December. But that's a story for another time, I'm getting too sidetracked.

You do know that's for a completely new set of challenges right?



No offense, but....uh....yeah  ^^^^^^^
SDM himself may not be grading the old ones anymore. but they do technically belong to RPG and Thorn. If they don't grade them, It's likely because they can't be arsed to grade over 9000 challenges at once.

Edit: OK, I May have took it JUST A BIT too far with that picture but...yeah, like I said.

Hardest is either white or cyan.  Cyan has annoying trouble spots.  And I'm familiar with white...

Someone shout try grading these <_<

I've been considering taking that role of grading as I have quite a bit of experience with fireworks. I am unsure when I'll be available enough to take the role of G-staff. I suppose I'll have to arrange further with the staff if such a role were to be bestowed on me.
